Enviro groups, supported by some legislators, pushing Biden for national biodiversity strategy

Nearly 200 countries have developed various forms of biodiversity strategies, but the United States is not one of them, according to a coalition of conservation groups that wants the Biden administration to create a national biodiversity strategy in a bid to slow the sixth mass extinction.

Worldwide, 1 million species are threatened with extinction, according to Defenders of Wildlife, Earthjustice, World Wildlife Fund, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Wildlife Conservation Society, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. Against that threat, the United States must adopt an effective, whole-of-government approach to prevent the loss of species, "the collapse of ecosystems, and the increasing threats these pose to our health, security and well-being," the groups said in a joint release.
